Before test equipment can be made available for use in the field, it must be subjected to many rounds of testing and re-design. In the development of new test equipment, formulating the initial concept is just the first stage. Some of these concepts may be discarded because they are not feasible or they are too costly based on expected demand. Aspects from different ideas may also be integrated into the final concept that is agreed upon by the company and the project engineers.
Design Process for Test Equipment
After the concepts have been developed and technical specifications have been drafted, prototypes of the testing equipment will need to be designed. Engineers can select among different materials based on specific properties that are desired, as well as the budget within which they must remain. While the technical specifications may call for certain materials, design revisions may be required to produce testing equipment that clients can afford to manufacture.
Just as prototypes of electronic components will need to be tested rigorously, so must test equipment. Businesses and organizations must ensure that the equipment they are using to prepare their technical reports yields accurate results. The test equipment must maintain low error rates for both type I and type II errors in order to be effective.
